Group Quilts Revealed!

Cooky's quilt
My quilt
Today was the big day! My Calendar Girls group, together 11 years, revealed the quilts from a block exchange we had in July. Every year we decide on a block project, make one for everyone, exchange the blocks mid-year then each go home and make a quilt from them. The theme this year was "North Woods Winter" and we decided to make 8 blocks, 9 1/2". We could make anything with a winter theme but not Christmas (because we've done that a couple of times), applique or pieced. Aren't they all wonderful? It's always so amazing to see what everyone else has put together.

WOW! Can I join your group??? I have been waiting for the reveal since you told me about it. I love yours but Cooky's color choice for the background is fantastic. The color is perfect with all the blocks. I did end up picking out a pattern from a June/July magazine for a baby quilt that looked cute, simple and FAST! Left the magazine at home so I will get you the information later. I cut everything by 10:00 last night and will be sewing the blocks together tonight/tomorrow. I may do applique on the boarder but have not decided yet!

What a great exchange idea! The quilts all turned out really nice. Isn't it fun to see how different the same blocks can look with different settings?
